Misc. Comments

I think of the two movements of Into the Wild as two kinds of wildernesses, one natural (“Portage”), named after the northern paths between two lakes, and one urban (“This Side of Paradise”) in the spirit of American author F. Scott Fitzgerald’s first novel. The natural wilderness is deeply textured, rich, and meditative, full of familiar and delicate sounds, each almost hiding behind the others to form a cohesive timbral whole. The urban jungle is quite the opposite; though no less complex than the woodlands, its radically disparate and noisy sounds compete furiously to occupy the foreground. Both lead the listener, I hope, to two very different kinds of transcendence.
